CHA DT Blog Hop Week - Day 4

The Impression Obsession team is showcasing some new images being introduced this week at CHA! You can visit the I.O. Blog each day this week for links to the previews. Be sure to leave a comment on each designer's posts throughout the week for a chance to win a gift certificate to I.O!
Gary Robertson's images are always so fun to color, and this series of porch scenes is so warm and homey. I used 3 Touch markers to color this scene:
Most of the shading was done by touching the tip of the Sand marker to the tip of the Chocolate marker and blending the color out.

Stamps I used:
CAC Marquise
Rocking Chair
